EIC is a non-profit, year-round program that provides one-on-one applied behavior analysis therapy for children on the autism spectrum, ages 18 months - 9 years old.
We offer half and full day programs, and goals are individualized according to each child's specific needs.
In 1995 Murray D. Wikol and Nannette Wikol started the Autistic Children’s Treatment (ACT) Network to help children with autism, their families, and professionals. Their vision was that families and professionals would have a place to turn to for assistance. In 1992 their daughter, Anika, was diagnosed with autism. Murray and Nan were given only the diagnosis, no resources or referrals to guide them as they began their journey. It is because of this that they wanted to help other families.
In 2001 the ACT Network opened up The Early Intervention Center (EIC) to provide quality intervention services to children with Autism and their families. EIC’s dedicated staff provides center-based services based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).
Seth joined EIC in 2013 as a Behavioral Technician after graduating from Spring Arbor University with a degree in Pastoral Ministry. It quickly became apparent that the job was something he was interested in doing long term after seeing the positive impact the program was having on the children. In 2016, Seth received his Masters in Education- Curriculum and Instruction from Arizona State University. Shortly after that he passed the Behavior Analyst Certification Board exam to receive his official certification as a Behavior Analyst. He now oversees all client programming and daily operations in the role of Clinical Director.
One of Seth’s favorite memories was working for months with a non-verbal client. There was a long period of time with slow and steady progress before things began to click and the client’s vocabulary began to skyrocket. It was fulfilling to see the dedication of the staff and the hard work of the client lead to such demonstrative results.
